    Funny it took a picture of me at 1am. I thought this was for the schools? Most of the 1st wave of cameras are around parks. Not a money grab, yeah right!

    I bet You These crooks will also lower the speed limit to make the fines bigger. The yellow lights timing was shorten to catch more people and make more money to blow away. Folks don't forget this is the most crooked city in the nation. Our politicians have no shame at all, stealing our money is their job.
